I poked my head into a little estate sale today and walked out with some really interesting finds.

 

Vintage clothing finds

My small, but respectable, finds from today’s estate sale.

 

Let’s zoom in on those killer shoes.

South Pacific hand crafted wooden shoes from 1944

My absolute favorite thing is when there are little notes that come along with my vintage buys. I love learning the history behind items! This note reads, “Handcrafted shoes sent to Amelia Brown (Maver) from the South Pacific during World War II, circa 1944). How cool is that? They are beautifully made with an incredible pagoda scene carved into the heels. The colors are still vibrant too. From some research I did on these shoes I learned that soldiers often brought these back from the war to give to their sweethearts as souvenirs.

Underneath all the goodies is a really pretty kimono perfect for lounging around in. I can’t wait to get her all cleaned up and listed for the shop.

 And, never one to pass on adorable baby clothes, I picked up these pretty little outfits. And the best part…they all came with tags with dates! I want to hug that mom and thank her for taking the guesswork out of dating her items!

Here are the up close images of the baby tags.

So there’s a little taste of my Friday morning! I’ll be getting these in the shop soon! Stay tuned!

Hope you have a great weekend!
